Mom's Birthday

Tomorrow would have been my mother's 70th birthday. It's been 9 months since she died. Not 5 minutes goes by without thoughts of her, her death and grieving what will never be... like her birthday. When my father turned 70, I threw a family party, we had a big dinner, it was wonderful. At that time, I told my mother I couldn't wait to throw a big party for her 70th....


I miss her so much.

Re: Mom's Birthday

Yes..I totally understand. My moms birthday was Sept 2nd. I took flowers to her grave. Yellow daisies. Her favorite. My dad and my brother are also buried there. Even though it's been 3 years for me ,you never get over needing and missing your mom.
I'm sorry for your loss...Kate

Re: Mom's Birthday

My mom's birthday was August 4. I barely made it through the day. My mom died Easter Sunday. She would have been 82 this year. It is very hard to deal with.

My condolences to all of you...
I lost my mom 9 years ago and it still hurts to think of her, it does get better but you are numb and raw for a while.
Of course birthdays and holidays are going to be hard but try to incorperate her memory at these events, put her picture at the table and say hello!! she is always with you

Re: Mom's Birthday

I just had a gathering at my house yesterday with my family after going to visit the cemetary. It was to celebrate what would have been her 70th birthday. I held up pretty good throughout the day but as soon as everyone left, I broke down and sobbed. At this point with grieving, I'm always thinking about what will never be... what could have been... what SHOULD have been...

I'm so sad today-

Re: Mom's Birthday


Sorry for your pain, it's all to familiar to me as well. My Mom died 7 months ago, with me at her side. She was 64. Her birthday was Sept. 11, it was awful. We would always go to lunch together. I took flowers to her grave and literally sobbed!!! I miss her so much and it was as though it was just another day to everyone else in the world. I wanted to scream "It's my Mom's birthday and she's gone"!!! Oooh, what a day. My heart goes out to all of you and I will pray for peace, for all of you and myself.....
